    Hi Grant!
    Your Mom shared your Caring Bridge website with me and I'm glad she did, I had no idea what you were going through until seeing this.  You are one very brave young man!  Our group here at UNC's Dept. of Pharmacology are very excited and looking forward to meeting you and your family on December 11.  Wishing you all the best, see you soon! ~~Arlene Sandoval

    Glad you enjoyed your Christmas. I'm sorry the surgery didn't work on your ear. Hopefully the doctors at UNC Chapel Hill have something that'll work. Just don't give up hope! I have really bad headaches that so far no doctors have been able to help or prevent. I've had them for 14 years now and I still have hope that maybe the next doctor will know something the last doctor didn't. So hang in there- I'm pulling for you!!!

    Praying that this surgery was a success and works! Also praying that you aren't in too much pain. Rest and get well soon!

    That goes for you too, Kim :)

    Hi Grant,

    I grew up with your Mom and Dad, oh the fun times I remember spending with them.....if you can imagine them being your age and running around outside at recess, that was pretty much what they got up to. :) I just wanted to stop by and let you know that you are being watched over by God and that your family has already decided that you will be well, and will not take any other alternative. You are a strong boy and I know in my heart that you will grow stronger with each passing day. You are in my and my families prayers and we look forward to following your progress. Keep your chin up and always think of your blessings and gifts above all else.

    You are quite the writer as well, I am so impressed with your journal. What a wonderful way to express yourself. Take good care of yourself Grant and know that our thoughts and prayers remain with you and your family!

    Have a wonderful weekend,

    Carly Zakutney and family
